XXX MUNICIPAL OFFICERS. 

1876. 

The City of Chicago was organized under the general incorporation act in 
April, 1875, and consequently no election was held in November, 1875; but the 
persons then in office held over until May, 1876. Under the new law the city was 
divided into eighteen wards. 

Mayor— MONROE HEATH, ^'H. D. COLVIN, *THOMAS HOYNE. 
City Clerk— CASPAR BUTZ.

Eighteenth Ward — -Jas. A. Kirk, Jacob Boser. 



*NOTE. — The order passed by the City Council, providing for an election for city 
officers under the (new) general incorporation act, omitted all reference to the office of 
Mayor. Notwithstanding this omission, and the apparent absence of any authority, a 
popular vote was taken for Mayor at the election, and Thomas Hoyne received 33,064 
votes, 819 scattering. 

The canvass of the returns being made to the Council, the vote given for Mayor was 
disregarded ; but the new Council, at its first meeting, decided to canvass the returns, and, 
having done so, declared Mr. Hoyne duly elected Mayor. 

Mr. Colvin, the incumbent, then declining to yield possession of his office on the plea 
that he was entitled to "hold over" under the law, a reference was had to the courts of 
law, resulting in the virtual failure of each of the contestants to sustain his position. 

In consequence, a special election for Mayor was ordered by the Council, which was 
held July 12, 1876, at which Monroe Heath was duly elected. 

fChas. Tarnow was elected to fill a vacancy caused by the resignation of J. H. Hildreth.

received the next greatest number of votes. The contest was not determined during the 
year, and consequently Henry Kerber held the seat until April, 18 < 8.

Mayor's Office. 
Chicago, April 11, 1906. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of 

the City of Chicago : 

Gentlemen: — Chicago has ample rea- 
son for congratulation upon its advance 
in municipal attainment during the past 
year. Throughout its governmental 
branches progress has b'^en achieved along 
many lines that make for justice and 
equality in all things to all our citizens 
and for good to the whole public. I be- 
lieve we have the right to meet to-night 
in a spirit of optimism as we again take 
up those further tasks with which we 
have been jointly charged by the people. 

ONE year's municipal GAINS. 

By the decision of the Supreme Court 
of the United States in the so-called 
ninety-nine-year-act case Chicago now 
stands stalwartly able to deal honestly, 
swiftly and justly with the traction 
problem — that problem which has for so 
many years confronted our city. 

By their votes at the ballot box Chi- 
cago's citizens again have declared for 
municipal ownership of the street car 
lines and for the issuance of street 
railway certificates by which to provide 
the means for the taking over of these 
properties and the bringing of the people 
back to their own. They charge us 
jointly with the task of executing the 
popular will as expressed at the ballot 
box. 

Your Honorable Body will continue 
negotiations and investigations, already 
under way, which promise to the people 
of this city reduced telephone rates and 
lower charges for electric light and elec- 
tric power. 

As the result of action recently taken 
by your Honorable Body the people now 
enjoy a rate for gas lower by fifteen cents 



per 1,000 cubic feet than the city ever 
before secured. 

Chicago's municipal water system has 
been so well conducted that a plant 
valued at more than $34,111,000 is be- 
ing maintained at less cost than during 
the ten previous years. Extensions and 
additions to th^ system, which will make 
for increased efficiency, approximating a 
cost of $5,000,000, have been begun or 
authorized. I shall ask your Honorable 
Body, as I asked during the past year, 
that at an early day an ordinance be 
enacted which will equalize the water 
rates so that justice may be meted "to 
all. 

The increasing of the numerical 
strength of the Police Department now 
is in progress. This means a more effect- 
ive warfare against the criminal element 
which besets this, as it does every other, 
great city. It is my intention and the 
intention of the responsible head of the 
Police Department that the entire force 
shall be conducted with the highest pos- 
sible measure of practical efficiency. 

PUBLIC HEALTH SAFEGUARDED. 

The safeguarding of Chicago's health 
has been especially vigilant and effective. 
The death rate for 1905 was 13.67 per 
one thousand population, or only about 
one-third of one per cent higher than 
the lowest previous in the history of the 
city, which was 13.62 in the year 1904. 
This means a lower mortality than in 
any other city in the civilized world of 
more than a half-million population. 
Coupled with this record is the fact that 
rapid advance is being made toward final 
purification of Chicago's water supply. 
Practically every link of the city's 
planned intercepting sewer system now 
has been placed under contract. 

These things, thus briefly stated, are 
typical of the accomplishments that Chi- 
cago has wrought during the past year. 
But there would seem to be little place 
for optimism when we turn to the city's 
financial condition. For years the mes- 
sages of each successive Mayor have 



April 11; 



lOOG 



dealt at length with the financial embar- 
rassments of the municipal government. 
Each year brings an increase in the vari- 
ous and growing needs of the city. Seri- 
ous injury has been done because of 
financial difficulties. Figures compiled by 
experts of the Federal Government show 
that the general property tax per capita 
in Chicago is less than that of any of the 
ten largest cities in the United States — it 
having been $9.32 in Chicago in 1904 
while in other cities the figures ranged 
from $11.48 in Buffalo to $28.01 in Bos- 
ton. In more extended terms I shall call, 
the attention of your Honorable Body to 
the fact that every effort should be made 
to remedy Chicago's condition, especially 
in view of the fact that the Charter 
Convention has been assembled and 
through its Avork relief should be found. 

THE TEACTION SITUATION. 

A majority of Chicago's citizens have* 
approved the ordinance adopted by this 
body on January 18th last, authorizing 
the City of Chicago to "construct, acquire, 
purchase, own and maintain street rail- 
ways within its corporate limits and pro- 
viding the means therefor." This ordi- 
nance provides that "for the purpose -of 
acquiring street railways either by pur- 
chase, construction, condemnation or oth- 
erwise as provided by law, and for the 
equipment of such street railways in and 
upon the streets of the City of Chicago" 
* '^ * "so as to provide for a 
first-class street railway system, the City 
of Chicago may issue and dispose of its 
interest-bearing 'Street Railway Certifi- 
cates' in the manner provided by law, 
not to exceed the sum of seventy-five 
million dollars ($75,000,000.00)." 

The people of Chicago having plainly 
manifested their desire for municipal 
ownership of street railroads with the 
least possible delay, I have diligently 
sought, since my inauguration as Mayor, 
for the best information and advice to 
this end and already have presented two 
plans to your Honorable Body. I again 
ask your co-operation in executing the 



duty with which we have been jointly 
charged by the people in this connection. 

The court of last resort, the Supreme 
Court of the United States, has ruled 
that the franchises have expired on prac- 
tically all of the street car lines in this 
city. On a few trunk lines the existing 
companies have the right to operate un- 
til, and only until, the city shall pur- 
chase. The so-called ninety-nine-year-act, 
so long the bogie in Chicago's traction 
situation, has been declared merely a 
wraith conjured up by traction-hired at- 
torneys. Every important trunk line in 
the network of street railways and many 
branch lines now stand at Chicago's hand 
to be taken under municipal control. Pay 
for the tangible property and a few unex- 
pired term grants and the city can take 
over this system and settle this "trac- 
tion problem" for all time. The people 
have demanded that this be done and it is 
our duty, as public officials, to execute 
the public will. 

As the first step toward this end there 
should be a test of the Street Railway 
Certificates. To this end I ask your co- 
operation. From time to time I may re- 
quest such action as may enable a prompt 
test of the so-called Mueller law under 
which these certificates issue. 

REHABILITATE AND MUNICIPALIZE THE 
STREET RAILWAYS. 

Pending the determination of this ques- 
tion in the courts prompt steps should 
be taken looking toward an early rehabil- 
itation and modernization of the present 
street railway system of Chicago. If 
this can be done by fair arrangement 
with the present companies without pre- 
judicing the demand of the people for 
municipalization such a solution might 
be adopted. If this cannot be done, then 
immediate steps should be taken to con- 
struct an entirely new system either upon 
the lines of the so-called "contract plan" 
or by direct contract with a construction 
and equipment company, which might 
operate until the system has been paid 
for by the proceeds of certificates or out 



April 11, 



1906 



of the profits turned into a sinking fund. 
In this connection it should be noted that 
on the North Side the present companies, 
under the decision of the Federal Su- 
preme Court, are practically trespassers 
upon the public streets. It should be re- 
membered also that the way always lies 
open to us to secure municipalization 
through condemnation proceedings in the 
courts. 

While the test in the courts is under 
way I may ask that your Honorable 
Body take steps toward putting into 
operation the "contract plan," which I 
outlined in my message of July 5, 1905, 
or some similar plan, for the taking over 
of tile street car lines. I commend this 
plan because of its manifest superiority 
as a means of accomplishing the object 
with which we are charged — namely, the 
earliest possible installation of good serv- 
ice md the establishment of municipal 
ownership of the entire street railway 
system of Chicago by construction, pur- 
chase or condemnation. 

Because of the condition of our trac- 
tion lines, reduced to the lowest level of 
bad service under the system of private 
ownership which has prevailed, every ele- 
ment of delay in rehabilitation should be 
avoided as far as possible with due re- 
gard for the street railway policy which 
the people have demanded and the en- 
abling terms of the Mueller law. 

READJUST TELEPHONE RATES AND SERVICE. 

As the result of several interviews held 
with the officials of the Chicago Tele- 
phone Company, at which the adoption 
of a more reasonable schedule of rates 
for telephone service was urged upon 
that corporation, the Committee on Gas, 
Oil and Electric Light of the Council has 
entered upon a series of conferences with 
representatives of that company and has 
set under way an investigation as to 
what rates would be reasonable for our 
citizens. In this connection the Illinois 
Manufacturers' Association has tendered 
its assistance and started a sweeping in- 
quiry as to telephone conditions, both as 



to rates and service, prevailing in other 
cities throughout the United States. As 
the result of advertisements inserted by 
the municipal government in several 
newspapers of New York City much in- 
formation, in the form of letters from 
citizens of that municipality, has been 
received. 

These conferences and investigations 
should continue with the object in view 
of giving to Chicago's citizens exactly 
that to which they are justly entitled. 
This public service corporation should 
be entitled only to a reasonable return 
on its investment. In ascertaining this, 
close attention should be given to the 
figures compiled by the city's ofiicials 
after an examination of the company's 
books. This problem, when it is set- 
tled, should be settled with justice to 
both the telephone-using public and the 
telephone-supplying corporation. Unless 
reasonable reductions in rates are granted 
to "Chicago's citizens, new corporations 
stand ready to enter the field and give 
the people what they ask — ^justice. No 
settlement of the telephone problem 
should be made that does not provide for 
three things: 

1st. A substantial and reasonable re- 
duction in present rates. 

2d. The furnishing at all times of the 
most improved modern service without 
extra charge. 

3d. The incorporation in any agree- 
ment that may be made with the muni- 
cipality of a provision under which the 
City of Chicago shall be empowered to 
take over and operate the telephone plant 
as a municipal plant when the State 
Legislature enacts a law enabling the 
city so to do. 

I am pleased to add, too, that through 
the same course of procedure steps have 
been taken to secure reductions in prices 
exacted by private corporations for elec- 
tric light and electric power. I am of 
the opinion that the rates which private 
companies have charged in the past have 
been exorbitant and, in some cases, un- 



April 11, 



1000 



justly discriminative between citizens. 
To this problem, too, your Honorable 
Body should give that careful attention 
and inquiry that will result in a just 
and proper settlement. 

KEDUCED GAS RATES SECURED. 

With other citizens who believed that 
the gas companies of Chicago had charged 
exorbitant rates for gas, I went to 
Springfield shortly after my inauguration 
and aided in urging upon the General 
Assembly the passage of an act enabling 
the City Council to fix reasonable rates 
for gas as well as electric light. The 
State Legislature passed such an act in 
response to this demand and the same 
was adopted by the citizens of Chicago 
upon a referendum vote. Immediately 
upon the adoption of this act I presented 
a message to your Honorable Body urging 
the passing of an ordinance reducing the 
price of gas from one dollar to seventy- 
five cents per one thousand cubic feet. 
After an investigation in committee it 
was thought best by a majority of your 
Honorable Body to reduce the rate to 
but eighty-five cents. I believe now, as 
I did then, that seventy-five cents per 
one thousand cubic feet would have been 
a just and reasonable rate. However, 
the people at least have secured to them- 
selves a reduction of fifteen cents per 
one thousand cubic feet, and, when the 
rate again is fixed five years hence for 
another five-year period, they will, I am 
confident, secure a further reduction. 

CHICAGO'S REVENUE DIFFICULTIES. 

. Chicago continues, as it has for years, 
to suffer from an economic standpoint in 
many vital particulars. We suffer sorely 
from lack of re\ enue adequate to improve 
our streets, to properly extend fire and 
sanitary protection and in general to run 
the municipal government as it should 
be conducted. No one can escape the con- 
viction that Chicago receives too small a 
revenue from taxation to meet the obli- 
gations due its people. It is not the 
average citizen who is evading his taxes. 



If anything, too much is exacted from 
him. But corporations and business en- 
terprises of vast proportions and capital- 
ists have been able, it would seem, to 
evade payment of just taxes on their 
holdings. Effort should be made by your 
Honorable Body to see to it, if possible, 
that just taxation is levied upon the 
large holders of property in this city by 
the assessing bodies. 

The average citizen, acquiring year by 
year greater education as to what he 
may expect of a modern municipal gov- 
ernment, knows that something is wrong 
but he has not seen the financial ob- 
stacles through which Chicago has been 
forced to fight its way in the effort to 
give its people that to which they are 
entitled. That Chicago has been unable 
to. raise sufficient revenue to properly 
run the municipal government is shown 
by the fact that of the ten largest cities 
of the United States its total debt per 
capita is less than that of any except 
San Francisco. Chicago's total per cap- 
ita debt is but a little over $28, while 
that of New York City is $143; of Phila- 
delphia, $42; of St. Louis, $39; of Bos- 
ton, $148; of Baltimore, $75; of Cleve- 
land, $53; of Buffalo, $51; and of Pitts- 
burg, $76. 

In general property tax per capita Chi- 
cago ranks lowest of the ten largest cities 
in the United States. Here are the fig- 
ures, as compiled for 1904: Chicago, 
$9.32; New York City, $19.36; Philadel- 
phia, $13.37; St. Louis, $13.88; Boston, 
$28.01; Baltimore, $11.16; Cleveland, 
$12.49; Buffalo, $11.48; San Francisco, 
$13.12; Pittsburg, $15.20. 

For the general administration of its 
government only one city, Cleveland, 
has expended less than Chicago. The fig- 
ures compare thus, as lately compiled, 
showing the amount per capita expended 
to conduct the municipal government : 
Chicago, 79 cents; New York City, $1.84; 
Philadelphia, $1.54; St. Louis, $1.27: 
Boston, $2.22; Baltimore, 90 cents; San 
Francisco, $2.17; Pittsburg, 90 cents.

GOVERNMENTAL BRANCHES RUN ON SMALL 
EXPENDITURES. 

Chicago's Department of Health has 
won a reputation throughout the coun- 
try and even in Europe for its extreme 
efficiency in protecting public health and 
its work in the fields of scientific re- 
search. Yet Chicago has been able to 
appropriate only about eight cents per 
annum per capita of population, while 
New York City has spent 34 cents per 
capita, Philadelphia, 25 cents; St. Louis, 
24 cents; Boston, 32 cents; Baltimore, 18 
cents; Celeveland, 18 cents; Buffalo, 10 
cents; San Francisco, 27 cents; Pitts- 
burg, $1.02. Yet, notwithstanding this, 
the death rate in Chicago is not only 
lower than in any of the ten great cities 
in the United States but lower than in 
any city in the civilized world having a 
population of more than a half-million. 

It is the same story with Chicago's fire 
service. We have heretofore been able 
to expend only 94 cents per capita, 
while New York City spent $1.57 per 
capita; St. Louis, $1.41; Boston, $2.21; 
Cleveland, $1.47; Baltimore, $1.74; San 
Francisco, $2.74; Buffalo, $1.47; and 
Pittsburg, $1.58. 

With the increase by your Honorable 
Body of the saloon license fee from $500 
to $1,000 a year Chicago has been en- 
abled to expend a comparatively small 
additonal sum on its Fire Department. 
We have been enabled to add to the force 
of the Department of Police about twelve 
hundred additional patrolmen that were 
absolutely necessary. Before that action 
was taken Chicago had but sixty-eight 
policemen to every one hundred miles of 
streets; New York City has 304 men to 
every hundred miles of streets; Philadel- 
phia, 151; St. Louis, 128; Boston, 186; 
Baltimore, 79; Cleveland, 120; Buffalo, 
118; San Francisco, 89; and Pittsburg, 
106. This is the condition through which 
Chicago has labored. In 1892, when Chi- 
cago's population was placed at 1,438,- 
010, the numerical strength of the city's 
police force totaled 2,726. Yet last year. 



when the city's population had increased 
to an estimated 2,019,968, the numerical 
strength of the police department bad 
decreased to 2,590. 

FINANCIAL SYSTEM PERFORCE CUMBER- 
SOME. 

Chicago's financial system has been 
perforce cumbersome and hindering. Un- 
der the law the city's appropriations for 
the current year must be determined 
upon and fixed by Council action by 
March 31 of that year. Yet the assessed 
valuation of property which yields taxes 
to meet these appropriations is not known 
until eight months later. Coupled with 
this are the conditions that must be 
met with in administering affairs of a 
city that spreads over so much territory 
as does Chicago. 

Energetic measures should be taken by 
your Honorable Body to bring about re- 
lief. Steps should be taken to impress 
upon the assessing bodies that tax-dodg- 
ers must pay a fair tax on their property 
holdings. The Charter Convention should 
be urged to frame such measures as will 
bring altered conditions to this city, for 
a complete modern charter can bring the 
remedy that is needed. Further efforts 
to bring about further consolidations of 
the various governmiental tax dependen- 
cies that exist in Chicago should vigor- 
ously continue. Consolidation of these 
governmental corporations not only will 
aid Chicago but will aid citizenship gen- 
erally in that it will focus public atten- 
tion on fewer governing bodies and thus 
bring about increased efficiency and econ- 
omy. 

PRIDE IN MUNICIPAL WATER SYSTEM. 

Chicago has just reason for pride in 
its municipal water system and its rec- 
ord for last year. Though the tendency 
has been constantly to lower rates to 
consumers revenues have continued to in- 
crease. The total revenue for the year 
was $4,219,562.44, or an increase of 
$48,368.76 over that for 1904. The 
Water Bureau has been completely reor- 
ganized and additions and extensions

which will call for an outlay of approx- 
imately $5,000,000 have been set under 
way or authorized. In order that a com- 
parison may be made of the cost of main- 
taining the water system, including the 
repair of service pipes during the last 
six months of 1905, records show that in 
1895 there were approximately 1,550 
miles of water mains maintained at a 
cost of $350,000 per year; that in the 
succeeding five years the cost reached a 
maximum of about $440,000, and at the 
close of 1905 there were 2,038.4 miles of 
pipe which were maintained during the 
year for $250,000. Thus it will be seen 
that in ten years, with an increase of 
nearly 500 miles of pipe, the cost of main- 
tenance has been reduced almost $200,000 
from the maximum cost during one year 
of the ten years mentioned, and this not- 
withstanding the great increase in the 
wage scale and the cost of improving the 
I methods of maintaining the system. 

The passage of an ordinance requiring 
the city to install and maintain all 
i water service pipes was a radical depar- 
ture from previous methods. Formerly, 
property owners were required to have 
i this work done at their own expense. Im- 
I mediately after the enactment of this or- 
dinance the city commenced the work of 
maintaining the service pipes, and with 
the additional appropriation for 1906 
will lay all service pipes from the main 
to the "buffalo box." This will mean a 
saving of from $75,000 to $100,000 every 
year to the property owners of Chicago. 

WATER RATES MUST BE EQUALIZED. 

In this connection I wish again to 
call the attention of your Honorable 
Body to the justice of the popular de- 
mand that water should be sold by the 
city to all consumers at the same price. 
The present inequalities in meter rates 
constitute a serious discrimination in 
favor of a small number of large con- 
sumers. A flat rate of eight cents per 
one thousand gallons should be estab- 
lished. I set forth my views on this sub- 
ject at length in a communication pre- 



sented September 25, 1905. In that com- 
munication I stated: 

"The total number of consumers using 
meters during the last month for which 
complete records are at hand was 5,749. 
Only thirty-six of these 5,749 consumers 
would have their water bills raised by a 
change from the present rates to a flat 
rate of 8 cents per one thousand gal- 
lons."' 

I further presented data showing that 
under present rates consumers in "Class 
A," Viho number 4,446, pay for their 
water at the rate of ten cents per one 
thousand gallons. This great body of 
consumers, therefore,' would be benefited 
by a change to an eight-cent rate. Un- 
der present rates consumers in "Class 
B," numbering 1,261, pay ten cents a 
thousand gallons up to 165,000 gallons, 
and eight cents per thousand gallons for 
all water used in excess of that amount. 
In "Class C" there are but fifteen con- 
sumers and these favored ones pay but 
six cents per thousand gallons for all 
water used above 5,000,000 gallons a 
month. In "Class D" there are but 
twenty-one consumers. These twenty-one 
pay, under present rates, but four cents 
a thousand gallons for all the water they 
consume over 10,000,000 gallons per 
month. Some of these consumers use as 
high as 50,000,000 gallons monthly and 
practically all of them not less than 
20,000,000, As four cents is below the 
cost of distribution the city is selling this 
water to these twenty-one favored con- 
sumers at a loss. 

The argument that it is reasonable to 
make a reduction to large consumers is 
fallacious. The main cost of a water 
system is represented in the cribs, the 
pipes and the pumping stations. These 
remain the same for all consumers. It 
must be admitted that the expensive part 
of a water system is the "readiness to 
serve." After a reasonable price for 
water is fixed it does not pay to install 
additional pumps in order to pump more 
water at a lower price. I would re- 



April 11, 



1906 



spectfully recommend that your Honor- 
able Body take action in this matter at 
an early day. It is just and right to 
our citizens that this be done. The es- 
tablishing of a flat rate of eight cents 
per thousand gallons will mean an in- 
crease to the meter revenue of the city 
of $150,000 annually. A change to a 
flat rate of seven cents would mean an 
annual loss of $70,000, so eight cents is 
the low price level to which the city 
can go at present. This change will 
mean justice to ninety-nine per cent of 
the water consumers of Chicago. 

VALUE OF city's WATER PLANT EXCEEDS 

$34,000,000. 
A new departmental system of accounts 
designed to produce in an intelligent and 
business-like manner the results of the 
ownership and operation of the Avater 
works by the city has been put in opera- 
tion. The accounting requirements pre- 
scribed by the municipal law for muni- 
cipal street railways have been observed 
and incorporated in the new accounting 
system. The following summary, taken 
from the Department's detailed reports,

The additions and extensions to the 
water s.ystem that have been put under 
way or authorized are worthy of atten- 
tion. I cite the more important briefly: 

Chicago Avenue Pumping Station — 
Work of installing three 25,000,000-gal- 
lon pumps has progressed during the 
year. Tunnel system adjoining this sta- 
tion completed. Total cost when com- 
pleted this year, $500,000. 

Sixty-eighth Street Pumping Station — 



Contract let for one 20,000,000-gallon 
pumping engine. Boiler room completely 
remodeled. 

Central Park Avenue and Springfield 
Avenue Pumping Stations— Contracts let 
for installation of one 40,000,000-gallon 
pumping engine in each. This will bring 
the maximum daily pumping capcity of 
each of these stations to 100,000,000 gal- 
lons. 

Southwest Land and Lake Tunnel and 
Pumping Station— Plans have been pre- 
pared for the construction of a water 
tunnel ten miles in length running from 
the 68th street crib to Stewart avenue 
and 104th place, where a new pumping 
station will be erected to accommodate 
four 25,000,000-gallon pumping engines. 
Contracts have been let for the first four 
mile section of the tunnel. Estimated 
cost of the tunnel system, including 
pumps and appurtenances, $3,000,000. 

Lake View Crib — Construction of new 
superstructure under way. 

Polk Street Tunnel — Work under way 
on a tunnel, 6,100 feet in length, extend- 
ing from the shaft located on the lake 
front at Peck Court to the Harrison 
street pumping station. 

Two-Mile Crib — Plans under way for 
the removal of this crib and the exten- 
sion of the existing three tunnels in one 
large tunnel to the modern Carter H. 
Harrison crib. 

Harrison. Street Pumping Station — En- 
tire new battery of six boilers installed. 

Plans are being made also for a seven- 
foot tunnel which will connect the Chi- 
cago avenue and Harrison street pumping 
stations, its length being two and three- 
quarter miles. During the year 49.4 
miles of new pipe, ranging from four to 
thirty-six inches in diameter, were laid 
by the city. 

In August last the City of Chicago 
acquired by purchase from the Chicago 
Suburban Water and Light Company the 
water system supplying Austin. By this 
purchase — the system including 22.8 



April 11,

1900 



miles of pipe ranging from four to ten 
inches in diameter — residents of Austin 
received reduced rates. I would respect- 
fully recommend to your Honorable Body 
that attention be given to the extension 
of the city's water service to Rogers 
park, where citizens have paid exorbitant 
rates for years to a private water com- 
pany. 

DEPARTMENT OF ELECTRICITY. 

In the Department of Electricity all 
records were broken during the year in 
the work of extending Chicago's munici- 
pal electric lighting plant. A total of 
1,580 electric lights, each of 2,000-candle 
power, have been added to the municipal 
street lighting system, making an aggre- 
gate of 6,687 arc lamps now in service. 
This stands as the greatest number of 
arc lamps added to the lighting plant 
in any one year since its establishment. 
To put these lights in service thirty miles 
of underground cable was placed, 250 
miles of aerial wire used, 198,435 duct 
feet of conduit laid and 1,830 poles set. 

During the year the municipal arc 
light system was extended into Austin 
and there displaced 130 rented lights fov 
which the city had been forced to pay a 
rental of $103 each per year. An average 
number of 5,700 2,000-candle power arc 
lamps has been maintained and operated 
from the four power stations of the city 
during the year. The average cost of 
maintaining and operating these lamps, 
including their proportion of office 
charges, but not including interest, de- 
preciation, taxes or insurance, has been 
$52.14 per lamp. 

The last and most modern electric 
lighting station built by the city was 
started in operation in March, 1905. At 
the present time, we are operating from 
this station 1,388 street lights. The cap- 
italization of this plant is $255,340 in- 
cluding building, stack, conduits, circuits, 
engines, boilers, stokers, condenser sys- 
tem, super-heaters, steam piping, crane, 
lamps and other electrical apparatus. 

The street lamps are operated from 



this station at the present time at the 
rate of $38.70 each per year, which 
charge includes all the operating charges 
such as coal, carbons, globes, repairs to 
steam and electric plants, repairs to 
lamps, repairs to circuits and conduits 
and posts, lamp trimming, engineer, dy- 
namo tenders, firemen, coal passers, day 
men, oilers, and other expenses not class- 
ified. There is not appropriated for this 
Departm.ent any fund for interest, de- 
preciation, taxes or insurance, but if, as 
a theoretical charge these are added, say 
interest and depreciation at 8 per cent, 
taxes at 1 per cent and insurance on the 
building at $110.00 per year, the total 
cost per lamp per year would amount to 
$55.34. 

By reason of this extension of the elec- 
tric lighting system 1,161 gasoline 
lamps and 799 gas lamps were discon- 
tinued from service. At the close of the 
year, December 31st last, the city had 
24,604 gas lamps in service and 5,568 
gasoline lamps, a total of 30,172, of which 
12,580 were gas lamps equipped with 
mantle burners. During the year the city 
made in the lamp repair shop and put 
up 10,000 street signs and 2,400 gas 
lamp heads, used 140 dozen globes in 
maintaining gas lamps, put in 1,600 man- 
tle burners and erected 400 new posts on 
account of new cement walks being laid. 

LIGHTING PLANT PROVES CAUSE OF MUNI- 
CIPAL OWNERSHIP. 

The Department of Electricity should 
be an object lesson in municipal owner- 
ship. The cost of operation of electric 
lights is constantly being reduced. The 
electric lamps operated have displaced 
arc lights for which the city in former 
years was forced to pay rentals ranging 
from $103 to $125 per lamp per year. 
This fact must convince doubters that the 
best investment the city can make is to 
place its money in municipal plants. In 
this connection I would state that, in all 
justice, the power to be developed at 
Lockport on the Drainage Canal should 
belong to the people of Chicago for their 



April 11, 

use. ♦With that power Chicago could ex- 
tend its street lighting system to every 
section of the city and make the streets 
as light as day. Chicago citizens have 
paid practically ninety-five per cent of 
the cost of the Drainage Canal and that 
proportion of the water power should 
be theirs. Definite steps should be im- 
mediately taken to this end. New equip- 
ment is being placed in the city's lighting 
stations which will lead to further econ- 
omy and reduction in cost of operation. 
The Department of Electricity has con- 
trol over the fire and police alarm service 
and the work of electrical inspection. 
During the year there were 8,763 fire 
alarms received and transmitted by the 
fire alarm operators. Eighty-four addi- 
tional fire alarm boxes and eighteen 
police boxes were installed. The total 
number of electrical inspections made 
during the year aggregated 36,615. For 
these inspections a total of $54,146 was 
collected in fees, while the total cost of 
conducting the Inspection Bureau, in- 
cluding all salaries, was but $22,150. The 
total departmental expenditure for the 
year aggregated $1,163,792.44. Of this 
amount $276,602 was for electric light 
construction, $298,751 for electric light 
maintenance and operation, $75,000 for 
rented electric lights, $295,800 for the 
Bureau of Gas and Gasoline Street Light- 
ing, $100,000 for the removal of wires 
and poles and $81,450 for fire and police 
alarm construction, maintenance and 
operation. 

DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH. 

Chicago is again to be congratulated 
upon its healthfulness. And in its turn 
Chicago again owes a debt of gratitude 
to the Department of Health. Compared 
Avith its own record of more than a half- 
century, the city's public health continues 
to be steadily improving with each suc- 
cessive decade. There has been no seri- 
ous prevalence of any of the epidemic dis- 
eases such as have smitten many less 
favored communities elsewhere. And, in 
great part, this is due to the efficient 



10 



1000. 



preventative methods and the educational 
work of the city's Department of Health. 
Typhoid fever — once the growing scourge 
of the city — has been less prevalent than 
in many of the other large cities and the 
total deaths from this disease in Chicago 
have been fewer than in any year since 
1880, when the city's population was 
barely one-fourth that of today. Re- 
peated importations of smallpox have 
been successsfully met and controlled. 

Chicago's deaths from all causes re- 
ported during the year 1905 numbered 
27.212. The death rate is placed at 
13.67 per one thousand. This is but -one- 
third of one per cent higher than the 
lowest ever known in the previous his- 
tory of the city. This rate, too, is com- 
puted upon the minimum population of 
1,990,750, as estimated by the United 
States Census Bureau. This certainly is 
a most conservative figure, as Chicago's 
population has been plax^ed over the 
2,000,000 mark by those who figure with 
conservatism. Compared with the other 
ten larger cities of the United States, all 
having a population of 350,000 or over, 
this city's death, rate is 19.4 'per cent, 
or nearly one-fifth lower than the ave- 
rage of the other cities. It is 3.3 per 
cent lower than that of Buffalo, 6.4 per 
cent lower than that of Celeveland, 9.4 
per cent lower than that of St. Louis, 
10.9 per cent lower than that of San 
Francisco, 20.5 per cent below that of 
Cincinnati, 20.8 per cent lower than the 
rate in Philadelphia, 25.4 per cent lower 
than the rate in New York City, 26,1 per 
cent lower than in Boston, 29.7 per cent 
below that of Baltimore, 30.3 per cent | 
lower than the rate in Pittsburg. 

The reduction of typhoid mortality in 
the last twenty years is pronounced re- 
markable. During the ten years from 
1885 to 1894 inclusive the average rate 
was 7.7 per 10,000, and in 1891 it reached 
17.38, this standing as the highest rate 
for this disease of any city in the world. 
For 1905 the rate has been reduced to 
1.65, or a reduction of more than 90 



April 11, 



11 



190C 



per cent from the highest to the low- 
est. The reduction in the cases of diph- 
theria has been almost as remarkable. 

SANITARY INSPECTION MOST EFFECTIVE. 

Under the present Commissioner of 
Health the work of sanitary inspection 
has been pressed vigorously. And this 
has contributed in great part to Chicago's 
healthfulness. The resumption of meat' 
inspection at the Union Stock Yards was 
ordered and greater activity was urged 
in the inspection of all food supplies in 
the retail markets. Within the five suc- 
ceeding months an aggregate of 3,935,000 
pounds of food, having a retail value of 
more than $337,600, was condemned and 
branded as "unfit for human consump- 
tion," The aggregate cost of this five 
months' Avork, which resulted in prevent- 
ing Chicago housekeepers from wasting 
nearly $340,000 in purchase of unwhole- 
some and even poisonous food was $5,000. 
During the corresponding period of 1904 
the total amount condemned and de- 
stroyed totaled but 151,470 pounds. 

Not less important than the rigid in- 
inspection at the slaughter houses and in 
the markets has been the sanitation of 
the restaurant and the regulation of cold 
storage. The volume of work in the 
laboratory has been greatly increased 
during the year. Especial attention has 
been given to the work of milk inspec- 
tion, which has saved the babies' lives by 
the thousand. Four inspectors have been 
kept constantly on the road, inspecting 
dairies within a radius of one hundred 
miles of Chicago, ascertaining the exact 
eonditons under which milk is handled 
before being sent to the Chicago depots. 
Six additional inspectors have operated 
in the city, securing samples at random 
from the supplies sent to Chicago. 
Scarcely a day has passed that heavy 
fines have not been assessed against at- 
tempted purveyors of bad or impure milk. 
A similar close inspection has been main- 
tained over the city's ice supply. 

Constant supervision of the water sup- 
ply, Avith publicity as to the daily con- 



dition of water at the various ptimping 
stations: regulation of lake dumping and 
the securing of sewage diversion from 
the lake; the correction of defects in 
water tunnels and pumping stations; pro- 
motion of the objects aimed at in the 
construction of the Drainage canal — these 
are the agencies used in reducing typhoid 
and similar diseases practically to the 
vanishing point in Chicago. In short, in- 
stead of safeguarding the people from a 
few contagious diseases the Health De- 
partment now strives to supervise all 
sources from which life may be endan- 
gered. Aside from food inspection, it 
provides physicians to the poor in cer- 
tain cases; it inspects tenement houses 
for unsanitary conditions; it inspects and 
vaccinates school children; it disinfects 
all places where contagion has existed; 
it gives free baths to all who apply. 

CHICAGO FIRST IN FREE PUBLIC BATHS. 

The Department now owns and con- 
ducts ten public baths, all operated with 
the view to promote ha^bits of personal 
cleanliness and to bring about observance 
of- the fundamental rules of health and 
sanitation. During the summer season 
there v/ere demands upon all of the baths 
beyond their capacity. As the result of a 
growing demand from workmen for their 
use after hours, the baths are now kept 
open every Saturday night exclusively 
for workmen, all the year round, and on 
Wednesday nights in addition during the 
warm season. Chicago was the first city 
in the world to take up the idea that 
public baths should be free, and during 
1905 621,893 secured baths at these es- 
tablishments. The total disbursements 
of the Department during 1905 amounted 
to $243,209.76, while $205,537.21 was re- 
ceived in licenses paid by various indus- 
tries and occupations over which control 
is exercised and from the sale of anti- 
toxin and other sources. 

DEPARTMENT OF POLICE. 

Notable work has been accomplished 
in the Department of Police. Open 
gambling has been suppressed. Vigorous 



April 11, 

warfare has been waged in the effort to 
stamp out the elusive handbooks and so 
successful have been the efforts of the 
Department, under the direction of Chief 
Collins, that it is more difficult than it 
has been in years for this sneaking form 
of gambling to raise its head. Vicious 
dance halls and dive saloons have been 
closed. I believe I can say without con- 
tradiction that Chicago today is morally 
cleaner than it has been in years. Mem- 
bers of the Department are entitled to 
recognition for the energy and industry 
displayed in the moral cleaning-up that 
the city has received. 

Twelve hundred young, energetic pa- 
trolmen now are being added to the rolls 
of the Department. This increase of 
numerical strength was an absolute neces- 
sity. For thirteen years, owing to con- 
stant reductions through deaths, dismis- 
sals and resignations, the strength of the 
Department numerically has been in- 
versely proportioned to the city's growth 
in population. Now effective warfare 
can be directed against the criminal ele- 
ment which besets Chicago just as it be- 
sets any large city. A squadron of 
mounted police will form a much needed 
aid to the force of patrolmen. 

During the year the number of arrests 
aggregated 82,572, while the amount of 
fines imposed reached $400,021 and the 
amount of lost and stolen property re- 
covered, over $382,000. During the last 
five months of that period the gambling 
detail, working under the Chief's personal 
supervision, made 2,650 arrests for that 
offense alone — a greater number than 
ever before within a similar period. A 
total of 173 "get-rich-quick" concerns 
were driven out of existence. During 
the period mentioned 2,396 persons were 
held to the Grand Jury and 687 convic- 
tions found in the Criminal Courts. It 
is gratifying to learn that the police 
magistrates throughout the city are co- 
operating with the work of the Police 
Department by imposing increased fines 
on offenders, and that the State's At- 



12 1906 

torncy has rendered valuable assisi- 
ance in the vigorous prosecution of crim- 
inals. In the Department the new United 
States Army drill regulations have been 
introduced with consequent improvement 
to the service. A "murder bureau" has I 
been established in connection with the \ 
Assistant Chief's office, lending valuable 
aid in procuring evidende in murder 
cases as well as in the apprehension of 
those charged with these crimes. The 
Municipal Lodging House has continued 
its splendid work during the year, hav- 
ing received about 13,000 lodgers and 
served over 26,000 meals, while securing 
employment for thousands. 

SMOKE NUISANCE MUST GO. 

An aggressive attack has been opened 
on Chicago's smoke nuisance, and prog- 
ress now is being made toward the abate- 
ment of this evil. For years the city 
has been defiled by the smoke emitted 
from its chimneys. Attempts to abate 
this condition were for years practically 
ineffective owing to the complicated and 
cumbersome provisions of the then ex- 
isting smoke ordinance, which might 
have been honestly described as an ordi- 
nance devised to protect smoke producers 
rather than to punish offenders. This 
fact seemed to lend insolence to violators. 
By the action of your Honorable Body, 
as the result of my message pointing out 
this conditon, the defects of the smoke 
ordinance have been so amended as to 
make, I believe, a further continuance of 
the smoke nuisance difficult if not im- 
possible. The fight on soot and smoke 
will be vigorously continued. The year 
that has closed marked the second under 
which the work of smoke and boiler 
inspection has been combined as the De- 
partment for the Inspection of Steam 
Boilers and Steam Plants. During the 
year the total number of complaints re- 
ceived against smoke nuisances was 444, 
while smoke inspectors made 15,462 re- 
ports and sent out notices of violation to 
the number of 10,285. Owing to the 
peculiar terms of the old ordinance, how- 



April 11, 



13 



1906 



ever, it was required that three notices 
must be sent an offender within ten con- 
secutive days or prosecution could not be 
made successful. With the new ordi- 
nance in force prosecutions now can be 
successfully accomplished. Many persis- 
tent violators, seeing the altered situa- 
tion, have caused changes to be made in 
their steaming plants and thus are now 
aiding in the work of cleansing Chicago 
of its smoke evil. During the year the 
inspections of steam boilers and plants 
numbered 10,036, with the result that 
notices were sent out calling for repairs 
in 3 336 cases. The receipts of the De- 
partment in fees and fines imposed ag- 
gregated $46,890, while the total de- 
partmental expense amounted to but 
$38,285. 

DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WORKS. 

In the Department of Public Works 
rapid advance has been made toward the 
effective purification of Chicago's water 
supply. Practically every link of Chi- 
cago's intercepting sewer system, planned 
to end pollution of the waters of the 
lake by diverting sewage to the river and 
th" Drainage Canal, is approaching com- 
pletion or under contract. The sewage 
pumps have been set in operation at the 
39th street pumping station and connec- 
tion of all sewers in that territory, here- 
tofore discharging into the lake, is being 
made. On April Ist all sewers between the 
Chicago River and 87th street were con- 
nected with the intercepting sewers with 
the exception of that in 56th street, and 
the latter will be connected within the 
week. Contracts have been let for the 
reversal of the sewage bores in 63d, 70th 
and 73d streets. This work will be com- 
pleted by July 1, 1906, and will mean the 
diversion of all sewage from the lake 
throughout the territory extending from 
the Chicago River to the Calumet River. 

Work on the sixteen-foot Lawrence ave- 
nue conduit, after delay of several years, 
has been vigorously set under way. On 
April 1st about 1,000 feet of this great 
bore, which will flush the north branch 



of the Chicago River and divert the North 
Shore sewage from the lake, had been 
completed. This work will progress, I 
am pleased to state, at the rate of about 
forty feet per day. Thp Lawrence Avenue 
Pumping Station, the excavating work 
for which was begun on September 1, 
1905, will be under roof by the middle of 
May and the installation of the powerful 
pumping machinery, contracts for which 
already have been let, will proceed at 
once. Thus the completion of the inter- 
cepting sewer system, over which Chicago 
planned so many years, has been brought 
in sight. 

LACK OF MONEY HAMPERS STREET 
CLEANING. 

Chicago has suffered sorely from lack 
of sufficient revenue to properly clean 
its streets and alleys. During the year 
1905 there were removed 1,456,927 cubic 
yards of garbage at a cost of $695,544. 
The miles of streets and alleys cleaned 
numbered 21,452i/^, necessitating the re- 
moval of 625,196 cubic yards of street 
dirt, the cutting of 1,742,018 lineal feet 
of weeds and the opening and cleaning 
of 374,863 inlets to catch basins. The 
actual net amount spent on this work 
was $287,577. It requires but brief 
study of these figures to see that this 
money must perforce be thinly spread 
out when the vast territory over which 
Chicago extends, portions of which are 
but scantily improved and but sparsely 
settled, is taken into consideration. We 
must remember that Chicago's growth 
in area has been so rapid as to far out- 
strip proper street and alley improve- 
ments. Much of the outlying area yields 
little taxation but its citizens, with just- 
ice, seek and stand in need of the best 
possible public service that can be given. 

Great a^ssistance to certain of the 
outlying districts was rendered during 
the year by the construction, under the 
supervision of ward superintendents, of 
almost fifteen miles of country road, the 
cost of which aggregated $133,049. 
There were also constructed, under con- 



April 11, 

tract, 3.4 miles of roads in the Thirty- 
second and Thirty-third wards at a cost 
of $32,300. These roads were built with 
a view to connecting the city with out- 
side towns and have proved of immense 
benefit. 

GRABBING PUBLIC PROPERTY MUST STOP. 

The Bureau of Compensation, created 
primarily for the collection of compen- 
sation for sub-sidewalk and alley space, 
was organized in July, 1905, and placed 
under the immediate supervision of the 
Bureau of Streets. This was a radical 
departure from former conditions. It 
was found that businless establishments 
were using sub-sidewalk space in the 
downtown district without offering the 
municipality so much as a cent of rental 
for the use of this valuable property. 
It was further ascertained that there 
were 13,000 square feet included in the 
encroachments of bay-windows upon the 
sidewalks of this district. The compen- 
sation collected from all sources during 
the remaining period of the year aggre- 
gated $41,543. This :amount may be in- 
creased to $200,000 annually. In all 
justice and equity the city should con- 
tinue to maintain this position of treat- 
ing all citizens alike and not allowing 
favored individuals or corporations to 
grab and use public property without 
enforcing proper compensation for the 
same. Many citizens, however, have 
shown a sudden lack of public spirit and 
have turned to resentment when asked 
to pay for valuable privileges they had 
used for years at the expense of the en- 
tire community. Though Chicago limped 
a financial cripple, these persons had in- 
sisted on using public property without 
compensation to the city. . Inequitable, 
imfair and unjust use of public property 
without payment therefor must cease, 
just as a fair and proper distribution of 
taxation must be secured. That man is 
not a good citizen who Avould hamper 
Chicago in the collection of honest de- 
mands for revenue, equitably distrib- 
uted. 



14 1906 

In this Buereau there now is kept a 
complete record of all sub-sidewalk and 
alley space in the territory bounded by 
Michigan avenue and Harrison street on 
the east and south and by the Chicago 
River on the north and west. This in- 
formation includes the name and address 
of the property owner, legal description 
of the property, the Board of Review's 
valuation on the same, the assessed 
value per square foot and the number of 
feet of space in use, the purpose used 
for and the compensation due the city. It 
has been found, too, that approximately 
1,000 switch-tracks are in use in various 
parts of the city, crossing public thor- 
oughfares, and yet yielding no compensa- 
tion. Steps have been taken to end this 
condition. 

In the Bureau of Bridges, Harbor and 
Architecture, a new bureau created in the 
Department of Public Works last July, 
progress has been made in all lines of 
work. Construction of the new bascule 
bridges at Archer avenue, North avenue, 
and South Western avenue, has pro- 
gressed rapidly. Surveys have been 
made and plans prepared for bascille 
bridges at Indiana street, Erie street, 
Chicago avenue, and North Halsted 
street ( Canal ) . In the Harbor Di- 
vision the lake front survey from the 
mouth of the river to the northern city 
limits was completed and more than 
21,500 lineal feet of docks were built or 
repaired, yielding a total fee to the city 
of $3,940. The Division of Architecture 
has under construction buildings which 
will aggregate a total cost of $364,550, 
the number including twelve new fire en- 
gine houses and five public bath houses. 
Throughout the Department of Public 
Works consolidation and simplification of 
governmental control and execution has 
been the rule, aimed at preventing loss 
of force and energy. 

DEPARTMENT OF BUILDINGS. 

In the matter of building erection and 
inspection marked improvement has been 
shown since !he enactment of the new 



April 11, 



15 



1006 



building ordinance. Under the present 
Commissioner of Buildings the laws have 
been enforced justly and impartially. 
Constant attention has been given the 
great number of old buildings erected in 
former years and which do not comply 
with the requirements of the present or- 
dinance. Every attention, too, has been 
given to the safety and protection against 
fire in all buildings where large numbers 
of people are employed or congregate. 
Fire escapes have been ordered and erect- 
ed to such an extent that there are at 
present but few buildings in the city com- 
ing under that ordinance that have not 
been equipped. Elevator inspection has 
been extended, there having been 12,651 
inspections made during the year, with 
orders given for repairs in 1,703 in- 
stances. The total revenue derived from 
this inspection branch aggregated $26,338, 
leaving a clear profit of $9,938 to the 
city after all expenses were paid. 

From a building standpoint the year 
1905 has been the most prosperous the 
city has enjoyed, exceeding 1904 by about 
40 per cent. During the year permits 
were issued for the erection of . 8,660 
buildings, covering a total frontage of 
253,026 feet and costing $63,136,700. 
' The revenue of the Department all but 
reach $100,000, of which about $30,000 
represented a net profit to the munici- 
pality. 

CORPORATION COUNSEL'S OFFICE. 

The Law Department has had during 
the last year a larger number of cases, 
involving greater amounts, more import- 
i ant issues and a greater burden of busi- 
I ness, than ever has fallen to any admin- 
' istration preceding and far exceeding 
I that which has been borne by any admin- 
' istration in the history of Chicago. By 
its work the Corporation Counsel's of- 
fice has won another record for ability 
and efficiency. 

Two cases at law recently won have 

been of the utmost concern to the people 

of Chicago — the traction franchise and 

. telephone suits. In the former a sweep- 



ing victory was won for the city before 
the Supreme Court of the United States, 
that court of last resort holding that the 
so-called ninety-nine-year-act, under 
which the traction companies had sought 
to maintain a grip for years upon Chi- 
cago's streets, did not exist. After the, 
municipality had faced this bugaboo for 
years and after traction schemers had 
sought to drive hard bargains with the 
city in return for its alleged waiver, this 
"act" was branded merely as a delusion 
evoked by a handful of traction-paid at- 
torneys. By this decision alone Chicago 
stepped at once into the commanding 
position in the traction situation, the 
court having declared that practically all 
the street railway franchises had already 
expired or can be immediately terminated 
by city purchase. By this judgment, it 
may be said that Chicago was delivered 
finally from traction bondage and the 
great fundamental rights of the people 
maintained. 

In the telephone case the Supreme 
Court of Illinois decided with the city 
that the Chicago Telephone Company 
must cease its high and illegal charges 
and furnish the people service at the 
maximum rate prescribed in its ordinance 
— $125 for business and $100 for unlim- 
ited service residence telephones. It was 
further held that outlying territory, an- 
nexed to the city after the corporation 
had secured franchises, must enjoy the 
same privileges and toll rates were elim- 
inated. Further, on the heels of this 
decision, the city secured the payment 
from the company of $200,000 as the 
first installment of compensation arrear- 
age held to be due the municipality. 
Prompt measures have been taken by the 
Law Department against various public 
institutions which have been recreant in 
the payment of their taxes. In the case 
of the Illinois Tunnel Company the De- 
partment secured for the present year an 
increase on franchise and personalty 
values which will yield $40,000 addi- 
tional to the tax fund. Notwithstandinsf

the increased volume of business litiga- 
tion has been pressed with unusual rapid- 
ity — cases carried to the Appellate Court 
and disposed of in the last six months' 
period exceeding in amount by about 
twenty-five per cent the volume disposed 
of in any similar period of time in any 
of the last ten years. In the enforce- 
ment of the civil service law twelve ap- 
peals either were taken by the city or the 
city sought to sustain the appeal. The 
municipality was victorious in nine, this 
resulting in the establishment of a larger 
era of civil service and its application. 
comptroller's office. 
The Comptroller's office has been ad- 
ministered with marked efficiency and in- 
tegrity. The course followed has in- 
creased the confidence of the outside 
world in the municipality's credit and 
investment safety. There was an increase 
in revenue for the year 1905 from taxes 
as compared with 1904 of $523,113.79, 
amounting to 9.4 per cent, with an in- 
crease of ordinary miscellaneous revenue 
of $263,224.87, or 4.9 per cent. There was 
an increase in the {Operating expenses of 
$515,368.93, of which $331,329.05 was ex- 
pended in the employment of extra police- 
men during the strike of last summer. 
Methods that make for increased efficiency 
are followed in the office, including uni- 
formity in accounting methods, daily re- 
ports and audit, and reports and balances 
monthly between the Comptroller and all 
departments. 

BOARD OF LOCAL IMPROVEMENTS. 

Under the supervision of the Board of 
Local Improvements approximately nine- 
ty-three miles of streets were paved dur- 
ing the year 1905, at an aggregate cost 
of $3,600,000. Asphalt was laid upon 
forty-eight miles of the thoroughfares 
improved, macadam on thirty-five miles, 
and the remainder distributed between 
brick, granite, novaculite and creosoted 
block. A total of 518.46 miles of side- 
walk was laid during the same period, 
the cost approximating $1,618,119. Of 
this mileage cement walk was laid on 



271 miles, cinder walk on 136 miles, the 
remaining being stone or plank. I am 
pleased to report that at the rate cement, 
stone and cinder sidewalks now are being 
constructed it will be but a few years be- 
fore Chicago will be entirely relieved of 
the wooden sidewalk nuisance. The 
Board constructed 128,808 feet, or 24.4 
miles, of sewers at a total cose of $641,- 
900. In addition thereto $75,000 was 
expended in the partial construction of 
the large Jackson Park avenue sewer sys- 
tem and pumping station. The contract 
has been awarded for the 95th street 
sewer system, another link in the diver- 
sion of sewage from the lake waters. 

CIVIL SERVICE COMMISSION. 

The efforts of the Civil Service Com- 
mission have been in the direction of 
elevating the general standard of con- 
duct and efficiency of the whole service. 
Further perfection of the organization i 
of the Department has been secured. Spe- 
cial study and attention has been given 
to the subject of examinations: First, 
in order to create the best and most prac- 
tical tests for entrance into the service; 
secondly, to provide the best tests for 
promotion purposes. During the year 
1905 eighty-one original entrance exam- 
inations were held for official and skilled 
labor, two for unskilled labor and twenty 
promotional tests. The applicants ex- 
amined in official and skilled labor service 
number 1,915, of which number 1,041 
passed. Those examined for promotion 
numbered 1,068, with 472 passing. 

FIRE DEPARTMENT. 

The Fire Department during the year 
1905 has continued its reputation for 
splendid service. The Department re- 
sponded to 8,742 alarms, the value of the 
property involved aggregating $117,497,- 
315. The fire loss for the year was 
$3,303,925, the total insurance involved 
amounting to $76,533,530. During the 
twelve months fifty-nine persons in peril 
were rescued by members of the Depart- 
ment. The casualties to citizens included 
thirty-nine killed and ninety-eight in- 



April 11, 



17 



1906 



jured, while six members of the Depart- 
ment were killed and 111 injured. 

Eleven new engine houses were erected. 
Three new aerial trucks, five new hose 
wagons and five new supply wagons were 
received and placed in service. New 
horses to the number of ninety-six, cost- 
ing $20,800, were purchased. The De- 
partment now embraces one hundred en- 
I gine companies, twenty-nine hook-and- 
I ladder companies, including one water 
[ tower and fifteen chemical engines, and 
one hose company. Four fire boats are 
on constant duty. Equipment is to be 
added at once to further increase the 
efficiency of this branch of the public 
safety service. 

MUNICIPAL PLAYGROUNDS. 

The Special Park Commission has con- 
tinued its work of providing playground 
breathing spots in the congested districts. 
Besides maintaining and operating the 
eight municipal playgrounds established 
in previous years the Commission estab- 
lished the Lincoln Playground annex, 
near Rice and West Lincoln streets, paid 
a portion of the expense of operating a 
playground at Grand avenue and Sanga- 
mon street and assisted four other play- 
grounds conducted by outside organiza- 
tions. The total cost of the work was 
$19,439. And in return for this outlay 
the municipal playgrounds during the 
year 1905 entertained 1,338,516 visitors, 
practically all children and parents who 
are hemmed in in the congested districts 
of our city. The Webster playground, 33d 
and La Salle streets, cared for the great- 
est number, the attendance there ranging 
from 9,950 in January to 48,900 in. the 
month of May. The work of the Commis- 
sion cannot be too highly commended. 
Pressing requests have come for the es- 
tablishment of playgrounds in the Ninth 
and Tenth wards and other congested dis- 
tricts that are destitute of breathing or 
recreation spaces. The deplorable con- 
dition in certain West Side sections has 
been presented to the attention of the 



West Park Board as well as your Honor- 
able Body and relief is in sight. 

DEPARTMENT OF TRACK ELEVATION. 

The Department of Track Elevation 
presents a record of a larger amount of 
work accomplished than in any former 
year since the abolition of grade cross- 
ings was begun. Fifteen miles of road- 
beds and tracks of railway companies 
have been elevated during the year, this 
work carrying with it the elevation of 
more than 129 miles of yard, switch and 
other tracks. Fifty-six grade crossings 
have been eliminated. The year's work has 
cost $5,800,000 without the expense of 
one penny to the city. Employment was 
given by this work, directly and indi- 
rectly, to 50,000 men. Numerous grade 
death-traps have been abolished during 
the year, and more will go in the tasks 
already mapped out for the present 
year. This work must continue until 
all grade crossings are eliminated within 
the corporate limits of Chicago. 

DEPARTMENT OF SUPPLIES. 

During the year the Department of 
Supplies xecuted a total of 21,238 or- 
ders, expending $791,232.23. The amount 
involved in an average transaction was 
$37.26. Of this amount a total of 2,478 
orders were issued on the warehouse and 
stock to the value of $22,926.22 issued 
from that repository. The average or- 
der amounted to $9.25. During the 
year old material was sold for four de- 
partments which netted the city $12,- 
836. The following departments con- 
tributed to these sales of old material: 
Department of Public Works, $8,373; 
Department of Electricity, $2,581; De- 
partment of Police, $508; Department of 
Fire, $1,374. The total expenditures 
for the maintenance of the Department 
of Supplies aggregated but $16,373. The 
business need of this department has 
been established absolutely. 

DEPARTMENT OF WEIGHTS AND MEASURES. 

A vigorous campaign has been con- 
ducted by the Department of Weights 



April 11, 



18 



and Measures against violators of ordi- 
nances pertaining to the sale of commo- 
dities. A new departure in methods has 
been undertaken in the organization of 
a "flying squadron." The results of this 
work have been shown in increased con- 
victions for the violation of the weights 
and measures ordinances. A total num- 
ber of 92,535 scales and measures were 
inspected during the year, with the re- 
sult that 5,220 were condemned. This is 
an increase over 1904 when but 72,963 
were inspected and but 986 condemned. 
Total collections for 1905 reached $19,- 
447.05, as compared to $15,968.25 in 
1904. Comparison shows an increase of 
fines imposed during '905 over 1904 of 
$2,238, the total for the former year be- 
ing $3,350. 

HOUSE OF CORRECTION. 

During 1905 the House of Correction, 
including the John Worthy School, had 
an average population of 1,737. A total 
of 9,927 men, women and children were 
received in that period. Important im- 
provempnts have been undertaken, the 
foremost being the erection of the new 
woman's building. This structure, which 
contains 198 cells, is equipped after the 
most sanitary and humane ideas in deal- 
ing with the safety and care of woman 
offenders. During the year 4,660,000 
sewer and building brick of best quality 
were manufactured. compared with 
3,821,000 in 1904. A total of 50,000 cu- 
bic yards of stone was quarried and 
crushed. Cinder roads throughout the 
yards have been replaced with macadam. 
Inmates now are being taught to manu- 
facture various articles, such as urns and 
lawn flower vases, from limestone screen- 
ings and cement, while the tailoring and 
shoemaking departments have been ma- 
terially enlarged. 

CHICAGO'S PUBLIC SCHOOLS. 

The youth of the city have shared in 
the advance Chicago has made during 
the year. Under the direction of the 
Board of Education the new course of 
study in the elementary schools has been 



lOOG 

given a more thorough trial. Manual 
training has been greatly developed. 
Sewing, cooking and physical culture 
have received increasing attention. In 
the high schools an important develop- 
ment of the year has been the reduction 
of the per capita cost. It has been 
possible, too, to keep the work at a high 
state of efficiency and at the same time 
handle, without a very large increase in 
expense, a remarkable increase in at- 
tendance. The attendance in the evening 
schools also showed a marked advance, 
the average attendance per evening for 
the year having exceedeed ten thousand. 

For years Chicago's schools have been 
overcrowded and the task of providing 
all school children of the city with 
proper accommodations is now nearer 
fulfillment than at any other time in 
the city's history. Six new school build- 
ings and forty -five portable one-room 
buildings were completed during the 
year, containing 145 rooms, seating 7,110 
pupils and costing $1,077,000. Four ad- 
ditions to old buildings have been com- 
pleted, adding 43 rooms, seating 2,070 
pupils and costing $522,000. 

There are under construction nine new 
buildings and 4even additions to old 
buildings, which will contain 262 rooms, 
provide seats for 8,116 pupils and cost 
$2,226,000. In addition the Board has 
ordered nineteen new buildings and 
nineteen additions to old buildings. 
When completed they will mean an in- 
crease of 558 rooms, seat 25,708 pupils 
and cost $4,844,000. During the year, 
too, it was decided to erect two sepa- 
rate schools for crippled children, one 
on the West Side and one on the South 
Side. The grand total of buildings and 
additions, including forty-five porta- 
bles, in all stages of construction or 
preparation is 113, containing 1,008 
rooms, 43,004 seats and the total cost 
aggregates $8,670,000. 

Modern ventilating and heating appa- 
ratus has been installed in many of the 
old buildings and the utmost diligence 



April 11, 



19 



1906 



has been exercised in the matter of 
smoke prevention. There has been 
hearty co-operation between the Board of 
Education and the Department of Health 
at all times, thus insuring the best pos- 
sible sanitary conditions in our school 
buildings. Truly this speaks well for 
the 247,000 pupils now in our public 
schools — the future manhood and wom- 
~ anhood of Chicago. 

All in all, Chicago is to be congrat- 
ulated upon the history that the city has 
written during the year that has closed.

SELECT COMMITTEE. 
The select committee, appointed under 
a resolution passed January 2, 1906, 
to investigate the payment of "ex- 
tras" to contractors on city work, sub- 
mitted a report making certain recom- 
mendations with reference thereto. 

Aid. Cullerton moved that the report 
be deferred and published. 

The motion prevailed. 

The following is* the report: 
To the Honorable Mayor and Aldermen 

of the City of Chicago : 

Gentlemen: — Your Special Commit- 
tee, consisting of Aldermen Cullerton, 
Dunn, Sitts, Dougherty and Riley, ap- 
pointed under the provisions of the fol- 
lowing preamble and resolutions, passed 
January 2, 1906: 

Wheeeas, There appeared in one of 
the daily papers of this city of date 
December 25th last, a statement cred- 
ited to T. J. Sutherland, Assistant 
Corporation Counsel, that within the 
last twelve years the sum of $55,000,- 
000 has been paid for extras on city 
contracts and that a large portion of 
said amount could be recovered by 
suits at law, and. 

Whereas, If such statement be true 
it becomes the duty of the City Coun- 
cil to institute a rigid investigation 
not only for the purpose of recovering 
moneys wrongfully and illegally paid 
to contractors, but also to establish 



and fix the responsibility of such pay- 
ments upon the proper officials, and 
by suitable precautions prevent such 
acts in the future; therefore. 

Resolved, That a committee of five 
members of this Council, be appointed 
by His Honor, the Mayor, with instruc-* 
tions to thoroughly investigate the 
question of such contracts upon which 
extras are so said to have been paid, 
and with full power to examine into 
the merits of such claims for extras 
and to report to this Council as soon 
as practicable its conclusions and rec- 
ommei;dations in the matter; it is 
further 

Resolved, That the Corporation 
Counsel be and he is hereby instructed 
to furnish said committee on demand 
all information in relation thereto 
within his knowledge, and such as- 
sistance as may be required of him in 
said investigation. 

Respectfully report that it proceeded 
to investigate the question involved in 
said resolutions, and held a number of 
meetings for that purpose. That Assist- 
ant Corporation Counsel Sutherland was 
present at such meetings and rendered 
valuable assistance to the committee in 
its work. Ex-Corporation Counsel Thorn- 
ton also appeared at the request of the 
committee and gave information of value 
on the subject. The committee also ex- 
amined Ex-Commissioners of Public 
Works Downey and McGann, now City 
Comptroller; City Engineer Ericson and 
assistant engineers and tunnel inspectors, 
all of whom in their official capacity had 
to do with the construction with various 
lake and land tunnels during the past 
few years. 

From such investigation your commit- 
tee arrived at the conclusion that suffi- 
cient precautions had not been taken to 
protect the eity from incompetent work 
and possibly fraud. In some instances 
it was apparent that proper inspection 
had not been made before final payments 
and that certain work was not in con- 



April 11,

1906 



formity with contracts. It was impos- 
sible for your committee to arrive at a 
conclusion that would fix the responsi- 
bility upon any particular individual or 
official. It seems clear to the commit- 
tee that there has been a serious mis- 
apprehension on the part of the offi- 
cials having charge of said works, and 
of the payment therefor, as to the scope 
of their duty in the premises. A more 
careful system of inspection would un- 
doubtedly in some instances not only 
have saved the city money, but would 
have resulted in a compliance with the 
contracts, thus securing to the city much 
better construction of the works. 

Your committee does not feel justified 
in requesting your Honorable Body to 
involve the city in extended litigation or 
investigation for the reason that in cer- 
tain instances it Avould be difficult to 
obtain sufficient proof to recover and 
the character of the proof necessary is 
difficult to secure because many of the 
defects are under water. It is, however, 
the opinion of the committee that the in- 
vestigation made discloses a condition 
of affairs which should be remedied by 
the Council not because it finds the offi- 
cials of the city dishonest, but because 
lax methods, prevailing in the rush of 
business, permitted contractors to slight 
work and claim extras. 

Your committee would recommend that 
suitable provision be made by ordinance 
providing : 

First — That all inspection of work be 
approved by the City Engineer, from 
personal inspection, after the report of 
his deputies. 

Second — That all contracts should be 
by him strictly construed and no discre- 
tion permitted in the matter of varying 
their terms. 

Third — That no variation in the terms 
of a contract, or allowance of extra.s be 
permitted, until submitted to the Coun- 
cil and approved. 

Fourth — That a suitable bond accom- 



pany each contract providing that same 
shall not be released until the work shall 
be finally accepted by the City Council 
acting on a .report of the Commissioner 
of Public Works, City Engineer and 
Corporation Counsel. This to apply only 
to large public works. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Ald. Edwaed p. Cuixerton. 

Ald. M. p. Eiley. 

Ald. L. D. Sitts. 

Ald. W. p. Dunn. 

Ald. M. D. Dougherty.

To the Honorable the City Council of the 

City of Chicago: 

•Gentlemen: — In behalf of the Chi- 
cago Central Sub-Railroad Company, a 
corporation chartered under the laws of 
the State of Illinois, I beg to submit for 
your earnest consideration the draft of 
an ordinance entitled, "An ordinance to 
empower the Chicago Central Sub-Rail- 
road Company to construct, maintain 
and operate a sub-railroad in the City of 
Chicago." 

We believe that if the accompanying 
ordinance should meet with the approval 
of the authorities of this city, it would 
result in a solution of the important 
questions involved in the traction situa- 
tion which is now and has for several 
years absorbed public attention, and 
which has placed this municipality on 
the defensive^ when it should be and of 
right is entitled to be the most aggres- 
sive and, therefore, the most enterprising 
city in the western hemisphere. 

We request that he ordinance be read 



by title and referred to the proper com- 
mittee. 

Very respecfully submitted, 
Chicago Central Sub-Railroad Co. 
Per Marcus Pollasky, 

President.

To the Honorable^ the City Council of the 

City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I return herewith, with- 
out my approval, an ordinance passed at 
the meeting of your Honorable Body of 
April 7, 1906, and published at page

ceedings, granting permission to the Val- 
entine Seaver Company to construct and 
maintain a bridge across the alley run- 
ning north from Eugenie street between 
Hammond street and Sedgwick street, and 
connecting the second floors of the build- 
ings of said Company, for the reason 
that it does not appear how high the 
lowest part of said bridge will be above 
the surface of the alley, and it is there- 
fore impossible to determine whether the 
use of the alley by the public will be 
interfered with. 

The clause relating to the revocation 
of the privileges granted by the Mayor

as follows: 

"The privileges hereby granted may 
be revoked by the Mayor at any time 
at his discretion."

ceedings, granting permission to the Coli- 
seum Company to construct and maintain 



April 14, 

a canopy over the sidewalk in front of its 
building situated at iStli street and Wa- 
bash avenue, for the reason that the or- 
dinance does not contain the usual pro- 
vision that default in the payment of any 
installment of compensation required by 
the ordinance shall operate as a termina- 
tion of the privileges granted thereby, I 
respectfully recommend that the vote by 
which said ordinance was passed be recon- 
sidered and that the same be repassed 
without the usual reference to a commit- 
tee with the following amendment: 

Amend Section 3 of the said ordinance 
by adding at the end thereof the follow- 
ing language: 

"It is made an express provision of 
this ordinance that the privileges here- 
in granted shall terminate and this or- 
dinance immediately become null and 
void if any default is made by the said 
grantee in the prompt payment of any 
installment of said compensation."

The following veto message: 

Mayor's Office. 1 
April 13, 1906. r 
To the Honorable^ the City Council of the 

City of Chicago : 

Gentlemen — I return herewith, with- 
out my approval, an ordinance passed at 
the meeting of your Honorable Body of 
April 7th, 1906, providing for a home 
for the detention of juvenile offenders 
pending a hearing, and published at 
page 3457 of the current printed Coun- 
cil Proceedings, for the reason that I am 
advised that this ordinance is drawn in 
such manner as leaves the subject very 
doubtful as to whether there is a clearly 
defined line of power on the part of the* 
City to contract obligations jointly wdth 
the County. That the present frame of 
the ordinance does not elearl}'- describe 
the exact relations the City should bear 
to the building, as distinct from that 
which the County Avould exercise. That 
the ordinance is indistinct and uncertain 



April 14, 



54 



1906 



as to its exact relations respecting the 
obligation of the City for any debt in- 
curred for the purpose of carrying out 
that part of the performance by the City 
as is contemplated by the ordinance. 

That in view of this situation it might 
be embarrassing and probably prohibitive 
to the City to make any contracts, or 
embarrassing or prohibiting any contract 
agencies to contract with the City re- 
specting the construction contemplated in 
the ordinance, because of the indefinite 
manner in which the provisions in the 
ordinance are stated. 

Therefore, for the purpose of having 
the ordinance recommitted and framed on 
the advice of the Corporation Counsel 
so that the difficulties arising from de- 
fects herein referred to might be reme- 
died, this ordinance is vetoed, with rec- 
ommendation that it be re-referred and 
take the course herein suggested. 
Very respectfully, 

E. F. Dunne, 

Mayor. 

Aid. Bennett moved to reconsider the 
vote by which the ordinance referred to 
in the veto message of His Honor, the 
Mayor, was passed. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Bennett moved to refer the ordi- 
nance to the Committee on Finance for 
consideration and to instruct the Corpo- 
ration Counsel to redraft the ordinance. 

The motion prevailed.

The following veto message: 
Mayor's Office. 

April, 13, 1906. 
To the FIono7Xihle, the City Council of 

the City of Chicago : 

Gentlemen — I return herewith, with- 
out my approval, an ordinance passed at 
the meeting of your Honorable Body of 
April 7, 1906, and published at page 3440 
of the current printed Council Proceed- 
ings, amending Section 779 of Chapter 
20 of the Revised Muncipal Code of Chi- 



cago of 1905, so that said section shall 
forbid the issuing of a dram-shop li- 
cense to any person or corporation en- 
gaged in the business of keeping a drug 
store, even if such person or corporation 
pays the full license fee required for a 
dram-shop. Said section as amended also 
would prohibit any drug store paying 
the full dram-shop license from display- 
ing in their show windows or show cases 
bottles or signs or other things to adver- 
tise the sale of intoxicating liquors. I 
withhold my approval of the said ordi- 
nance for the reason that I am advised by 
the Law Department that under the Re- 
vised Code, as amended thereby, every 
person or corporation would be entitled 
to keep a dram-shop excepting drug 
stores alone and that the ordinance is, 
therefore, illegal as an arbitrary discrim- 
ination against persons and corporations 
engaged in the business of keeping drug 
stores. 

Respectfully submitted, 

E. F. Dunne,

out my approval, an order passed at the

the current printed Council Proceedings, 
granting permission and authority to 
the C. A. Paltzer Lumber Company to lay
